*** Talk Is Cheap ***

Well, I heard that news by the man in the street
How his shades are cool and his Doc's are sweet
Ska music, reggae it's the same old beat
But it's different clothes on a new elite

Oi!

Well, I heard that news from the man in the street
How his Doc's are cool and his shades are sweet
Ska music, reggae it's the same old beat
But it's different clothes on a new elite
And I heard that rap about unity,
That only works when the beers are free...
Talk to me about pickin up the slack
Turn around and stab me right in the back!

Hoi!
Talk is cheap!

Payin your dues cause nothing is free
And your making a deal that means nothing to me
And your missing the point if you can't see
This is '87 not '63!
And you talk to me about the problems of the world
You're trying to pull your best friends girl
Talk to me about picking up some slack
Turn around and stab me right in the back!

Talk is cheap!

And I heard that rap about unity,
That only works when the beers are free...
Talk to me about pickin up the slack
And then you turn around and stab me right in the back! hey!

Talk is cheap!
Yea talk is cheap...
Talk is cheap!
